In Frans' own words:
For the past two decades Frans has been involved in ceramics. His interest in the craft led him in many directions, finally settling himself in the somewhat unpredictable world of Raku. His passion for strong earth colors, and metallics coupled with Textures, he lets the forms speak for themselves. He is ever on the search for forms that allow him to express these passions, ones that best suit his personality and commitment to his craft
A quick study in the methods, he began by learning techniques from prominent potters in the region. He acquired several certificates in Ceramic programs at
Sheridan College, Oakville Campus, Canada. This provided the continuing education needed to allow him to hone his skills.
His works are displayed in private collections in, Greece England, Japan, Germany, USA, and Canada. Residing in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, Frans teaches pottery at the Credit Valley Artisans in Georgetown, Ontario and is a member of The Hamilton Potters Guild, Hamilton, Ontario.
